To be fair to Taylor he didn't duck Froch to fight Lacy, HBO made the choice for him. Lacy is still a 'name' in the USA whereas Froch isn't.

Manny Pac and Antonio Margorito are set to fight that Month, also Lacy vs Taylor and Klitschko vs Povetkin. I would imagine ****** would put Khan on the same night as Jennings vs Williams FOR ppv. what a month.
good lineup. is jennings-williams that likely though or is it just FW hyperbole? shit that will create a huge personal dilemma between my ******-hating and boxing-loving personalities if its ppv.

It saddens me, because Lacy is no more than a club fighter now. I have seen his last fight and it had draw written all over it, against some no mark chump.

Jennings is the mando for Williams, which is hardly surprising given the fact that he is a Sports Network fighter and holds the WBU 'title'. From what I understand, Goossen is willing to make this fight, almost as a stay busy bout rather than vacating.

Not sure what to suggest really, for either party. Jennings will get a beating, whilst Williams has bigger challenges elsewhere IMO.

He's not ice cold ruthless, he's just got the personality of a Robot.

Hatton-Mallignaggi won't be for the IBF Title.

Mallignaggi will get stripped for refusing to face his mandatory challenger (Ngoudjo).

He won a very controversial decision. Because of that Ngoudjo was involve into a title eliminator against [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] for a shot at Malignaggi. The winner was to get a title shot before the end of october.

Malignaggi knew all that before facing N'dou and before deciding to fight Hatton.

Also, according to the IBF rules. The champion has to make a mandatory defense every 9 months.

Thats true.

Ive not been impressed with Froch as of yet, and i think he could be fighting more often, 3 to 4 times a year would not hurt him at all.

He has got skills but i have a feeling he is going to fall just short at the top.

Latest from froch... no fight news though...

"Sadly there are a few others in boxing who also need to turn it in. Roy Jones was an unbelievable talent in his 1990's heyday, but as much as i admire what he has done over the years the stark reality is that he's been smoked in three of his last six fights ! I find it a bit disapointing that Calzaghe has decided to fight Jones after declaring in his autobiography that he would prove nothing by being the third person to knock Jones out.


As much as he says it will earn him good money I can't help but feel he wants to protect his unbeaten record more than challenge himself against a hungry fighter like Pavlik or yours truly. Eubank gave Joe his chance but it seems he is reluctant to pass the torch and would rather keep his '0' intact."
